Abstract

The study presented in this round table session examines the case study of how school visits to museums can be enhanced with the use of social media tools (e.g. Twitter). It is specifically concerned with the potential of web 2.0 technologies for extending the museum learning experience and facilitating the meaning-making process. It draws on Falk and Dierking’s (2000) Contextual Model of Learning and considers evidence of meaning making from students’ online posts and activity on-site.
